What You Need to Know About Felix's Weight Loss Program Pricing

Key Takeaways
  • We commit to sharing straightforward information about the costs involved so you know exactly what's included in the program.
  • The program has an initial program fee of $99, in addition to a $40 checkup visit fee that occurs once a month until your steady state dose. These fees are pre-authorized upon submission of the intake quiz, and are only charged when a prescription is written.
  • The prescription weight loss medication costs vary by medication, starting from $315 per pen to approximately $500 per box in some cases.
  • Weight loss treatment may or may not be covered by private insurance plans. Around 40% of patients have seen some or all of their first prescription covered while some providers only cover the first one or two prescriptions.

At Felix, we believe weight loss programs should provide judgement-free treatment and address biological factors such as genetics, hormones and metabolic rate that determine your weight — while being completely transparent about all costs involved.

Let's go over everything our program includes, as well as how much it costs and what exactly you’re getting.

How can insurance help with the weight loss program pricing?

Our weight loss treatment may or may not be covered by your private insurance plan, so you’ll need to contact your insurance provider directly for more information regarding your coverage. However, it may help to know that we’ve seen about 40% of patients get some or all of their first prescription covered. We have noticed that some providers cover only the first one or two injectors.

You can upload your private and/or provincial insurance information during your online visit, and our pharmacy partner will apply any coverage you’re eligible for before shipping your first treatment. We’ll also submit your medication insurance claim directly to your provider on your behalf so it’s one less thing for you to worry about.

It's important to note that insurance coverage for online medications through Felix doesn't include the cost of your assessment.

How do I know if my insurance plan will help cover the weight loss program?

To determine whether your insurance plan will help cover your weight loss medication, contact your insurance benefits administrators with the following information:

  • your details
  • the Drug Identification Number (printed on your medication package)
  • your drug name

Even if your insurance provider covers this type of weight loss medication, you may need to meet specific medical criteria or provide documentation from your healthcare practitioner in order to be eligible for coverage.

Now that you know everything about how pricing works for our program, you’re ready to take the next step in your weight loss journey.
